Red vines, lifesavers, tic tacs, gum, heroes, hats, be red, be you, twins, and touring. This is the life of the students of Springville Junior High the last week of March. The students had the opportunity to be part of Hope Week, which is a week that the Hope Squad used to display their beliefs on how life should be for students. Each day’s dress up represented something that the Hope Squad felt should be brought to the attention of all the people who attend the school. They had several meetings to decide what they felt would help the school become the “happiest place on earth”.

It’s true that the Hope Squad wants to come close to the idea of Disneyland’s goal of being the happiest place on earth. They aim to work together and make the best Junior High experience for everyone. The goal of Hope Week according to Ashley Edwards, an eighth grader, is “To make people aware of what students are there to help them if they need some support.” Emma Cox added to her statement saying that not only is it to make known the members of the Hope Squad, but to show that the matter of loneliness is not getting better, but being ignored. Gibson Condie sums it up by saying, “If you are going through hard times Hope Squad is there.”

Hope Squad put together that week with the sole purpose of bringing the school together and uniting us as a whole. While the dress days were fun, the Hope Squad put a lot of thought and effort into them to make them that way. Dress up week is not just simply dressing up it is symbolising what you believe in. Hope; “A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.”

Article: Summer is Almost Here!

From todays date, there are only 20 days of school left. The end of school is near, and that means summer is right around the corner. We are still in school though, which means we still have more work to do before we can check out of school. There is Sage Testing, which requires preparation before we can start. But we are almost there.

Sage Testing. All students have experienced it, and some may find it frustrating. Ms. Merrill, who taught seventh and eighth grade science this year thinks Sage is, “good for students to know where they are at.” Sage isn’t just to annoy students, it actually has a reason. There is a test for science, english, and math which goes on for a week or two. After that is the fun stuff.

At Springville Junior HIgh, we have the awesome opportunity to go to Lagoon as a school. As a little treat for Sage Testing we take buses for a day at Lagoon. A couple of hours to run around and enjoy the park. This year it is on May 18, so make sure to get your detentions and deficients made up so you can go enjoy Lagoon.

Sadly, after summer, school will resume again, as it always does. Seveys will no longer be seveys, eighth graders will be the king of the school, and ninth graders will move on to high school. Angela Lopez, in ninth grade is excited for a “fresh start with some of the same kids.” Whether you are excited or not, school will come again and it will bring some changes.

Even though school will always resume, make sure you enjoy the end of school and have an awesome and safe summer. Try to do more outside stuff rather than being camped inside on electronics.

Article: Romeo and Julieta play

Recently our school had the pleasure of viewing the performance of BYU Youngs Romeo and Julieta play. This play was only seen by 9h graders and spanish immersion students, and was performed with scenes in spanish throwing and unsuspected twist on the original tragic love story.

 All of the ninth grade and spanish immersion class was invited into the cafetorium to watch the performance. Jesus Hernandez, a ninth grade student said “It was fun to watch. Pretty good overall.” Jesus liked that it was in spanish and he liked the added twist. He only wished there were louder performers but he said he still enjoyed it.

Another student, Chloe Clarke, who is in spanish immersion said she liked to see the team work and and it was all really fun. “It was really cool and fun, and I liked how it was bilingual.”

All in all it was a very great performance and everyone who saw it is very grateful they took the time to perform for all of us here.

Fourth graders took a field trip to Utah Lake to learn about wetlands, fish, and mosquitos (yuck)! Fifth grade competed in a track meet, and many of our Cherry Creek crocs placed in their events.

2018 Keys to Success Assembly

  Utah’s KTS is an incentive program that gives out “Key Cards” to students during the school year which they can later cash into prizes from free food like Costa Vida to visits to the Natural History Museum of Utah and The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. At the end of every school year, there’s an assembly where finalists that meet certain criteria are required to attend.  This assembly happened on Friday, April 10th.

  Fifty finalists were called down by color groups and students were singled out for a mini “interview” where the presenter, asked the student who they wanted to join them down there to give them more luck. Warren Wilson called down the entire orchestra, others called down Choir students and the Soccer team to give them a spice of luck.  

  After every color group, there were small competitions like burrito eating contests, a tricycle race between Ms. Oda and Coach Clark—where Oda was victorious—and a money blowing machine where a student caught money straight from the air.

  Close to the end, the five finalists; Delhesmy Solis, Sage Jackson, Lylah Beaudry, Bryson Elliott and Grace Carillo were trying out five keys and inside an inflatable car, there was a box that only one key would unlock. The person who got the compatible key won an iPod and will move on towards a car giveaway.  The giveaway will be transmitted live on KUTV news and five brand-new cars will be handed out to the 10-13 finalists from different schools. A obvious look of pleasant surprise hit Sage Jackson when she realized that her key had been the one that opened the lock.
